By Mark DeBruin

December 6, 2023

In this webinar, we will go over the benefits of lost foam which can include large cost savings.  Castings can be redesigned from the existing machined drawing or a complete component redesign.  Design for Lost Foam topics included:

  • Design for guidelines and how lost foam can break the “rules” you may have learned
  • Redesigning from existing Machined component
    • Dimensional tolerances
    • Determining what needs machined if needed
  • “Impossible shape” examples
  • Part consolidation
  • Lightweighting
  • Tooling considerations vs. the use of Additive Manufacturing Evaporative Casting
